tional prosperity and national wealth arc I not synonymous terms. The aggregate amount of wealth may be increased while the number of prosperous individuals may bo diminished. Tho prosperity of the many should bo the chief object of gov ernment; nnd because credit Is not ben cficlnl to the many, it should not bo en couraged. There is a fallacy in the idea that credit is beneficial to the many; and on examina tion the convcrso of the proposition will be found true. Credit is generally given by the wealthy, und it is given in the expecta tion that they gain something by it : but it by no moans lollows that lliey who nt-k credit ore benefitted by it. Thoso who buy to sell again may bo benefitted, but the consumer who buys on credit always loses. It is well known that purchases for cash are made on better terms than when made on credit, the difference being about 12J cts on the dollar. This is a direct lax on the purchaser on credit, and it tends to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. The admitted fact that those who have the money in hand can alwoys buy most reasonably, is a strong argument against the extension of credit. The cry that the poor will thereby be distressed Is false. Let the many have prompt pay and they will never be without tho means of pay ment. They will have greater induce, mcnts to exert themselves, their means of -cash payments will bo enlarged, their savings increased, and they become sharers in the general prosperity. If the population of any section of country of thirty thousand souls should be divided into classes it would probably be as follows ; Women and children 20,000 Day laborers 0,000 Farmers 3,000 Mechanics 800 Professional men 100 Merchants and Inn keepers 00 Manufacturers 10 30,000 This estimation though not strictly accu rate, is sufficiently so for the piescnt pur pose. In the class of day laborers it is intended to include tho operatives attached to manufactories. By this it will bo seen (hat the laborers, fanners, mechanics and manufacturers arc the only persons who ndd anything to the stock of tho products of industry, or. in other words, they arc the only persons who add anything to the national wealth. All the others arc of the class of non-producers. By this it will be Eccn that the wealth of a country has its origin in the active exertions of about one third of its inhabitants; and it is all im portant to give their exertions a right direction. That tho exertions of this class will be increased, and, consequently, the amount of the products of their exertions by the ready pay system, I consider as self evident. The consequence is, that of mis thirty thousand, all except two hun dred will bo benefitted by abolishing all credit. Of the remainder, there are ubout one hundred whoso appropriate business is to circulate the products ot industry ; in other words, to take the stock from the farm, give it an increased value in the shop and manufactory, and distribute it to the consumers. With these credit, is an im portant instrument, and can be beneficially employed. I will endeavor in my next to show what is the true basis of credit, and that a healthful credit is promoted by abolishing all imprisonment. A. B. TUB CURRENCY QUESTION. Tho speech of Mr Webster in reply to the toast personally complimentary to him, at the lato festival ai Faneuil Hall, was marked by his usual perspicuity of thought and felicity of expression. Mr Webster being a very sound thinker, is necessarily a very clear speaker, and though few if any, can excel him in the beauty of his figurative illustrations, none ore more in variably successful in conveying their meaning to their audience in tho most direct and inteligible manner. We quote an extract from tho Bpeech, in which he presents a clear exposition of the case as it now stands. Wo think that no candid man, whatever may bo his party predilections, can read and bo uuconvinced of the truth of Mr. Webster's demonstra tion. Whatever suooruinato questions may have been raised touching a Sub-Treasury, or a Constitutional Treasury, or a Treas ury in one or in another, or in yet a third form, I take the question, the plain, the practical question o be this, viz; whether it be among the powers and the duties of Congress to take any farther caro of the National Currency than to regulate the cuinago of Gold ond silver? That is tho question. From that, all subordinate questions, however thoy may havo been multiplied or varied, have grown. How, indeed, that should have become a question at this day, might be a louder; for it is a truth capable of proof from all the records of this Government for forty years from tho very first day that tho Constitution drew breath as a practical form for the Administration of Govern merit, it has uniformly been received and admitted as ono of tho duties of the Gov ernment to take care of the National Cur. rency. In Woshington's lime, and in that of his successors, especially in tho times of Mr Madison, when tho peculiar circumstances of the country brought that subject into new importance, it was held to be tho ex clusive, or, at least, the paramount and unquestioned duty of Congrats to regulate the action of the currency, whether of pa per or epecio. and that principlo has been acted upon by every branch of this Gov ernment, with, the full knowledge and ap. nrolation of the American people, How then should tho question have arisen at tho end of tho 48th year of tho constitution? Nothing but tho tortuouB windings of party policy could ever havo conducted us to such a point: nothing olsu could ever havo raised such a question at thin Into dav. From Wushincton's ad ministration down to tho administration of General Jackson, ana m none more man m hit. this dutv has been admitted, nnd at tempted. It never lias been denied to bo tho duty of Congress, cither as ono form i of the exercise of tho Commercial Power or as a necessary inference from tho Coin ing Power. All will remember that the vorv first complaint of Gen. Jnckson against tho lato Bank of the U. stales was this, that it had disappointed the expectation of tho people in not furnishing to the nation a sound and uniform currencv. In that doctrine thore wcro. indeed, many who did not ogrco with him; but it was expressly on this ground that houndortook this grand reform of tho currency which manv think was a very sorry reform indeed. IIo said that the currency was not so sound and so uni form as it was l ha duly of the Govern ineiit tomako it; nnd ho therefore attempt ed to give us a currency muro sound and more uniform. Tho deposites wcro removed in '33, and tho policy of employing the Statu Banks as the Depositories was adopted, and that experiment has been proved. It was then said that a belter and safer currency would be provided for tho country. IIo referred to this but to say that down to '87, tht duly nf furnishing a currency, an actual cur. rency for commcrc, had been considered the undoubted duty of Congress, as much so as the duly of making war or foreign treaties. l ins removal ot tho ocposites had led to the suspension of specie payments by tho banks, and since then a new reading of the Constitution had been adopted. No such duty could be found. It has been scanned by candle light, and it is not there. Tins plain duty, which no man to '37 has ques tioned, vanishes at once, and the new commentators can't find it. A new Administration came into power pledged to follow in the footsteps of its predecessor; but there was one footstep loo big for him to put his foot in a slrido too long for him to tako. This is a serious fact, for in that, which I may call, fatal message, to the last session of Congress, there was the announcement ol a disavowal of all power in the General Government, under the authority of the Constitution to regulate the commerce or the currency. The message of 1837 disavows all power on tho part of the government upon these subjects; and that I may do no injustice to Uio President I will repeat the words. The President says, "from a want of Constitutional power, I refrain from recom. mending any plan for tho regulation of the currency, for the relief of the commerce of the country." Any plan to regulate the foroign and domestic commerce of the country, it is not, ho says, in tho power of the (jovcrnnient to adopt. Yet it is writ ten in the Constitution that Congress has power over both foreign and domestic com merce. What was tlie necessity for this avowal? It was not tho crisis of tho country, but it was the crisis of a parly. Tho adminis tration preceding the present, had rejected the United Slates Bank, and had sel up the question, that the Bank was unconsti tutional. This idea they had sol up all over the country. I have nothing to say tor the wisdom or modesty of men, who after the Legislative decisions and judicial enactments of half a century, choose to set up their private judgment against the gen eral confirmed opinion of the country. J.W DUUIIUI IIUU UIUIU UUUtVB &UIUII dcd,and nmong them those that were deposi lories of tho Government, than the Admin istration raised the cry of treachery, want of faith, perfidy a cry as false in mv own ion. as tho cry raised a short time beforo by the same party, lhat lliey wero safe and could commit no error. But, whether the suspension was rinht fully made or not, the administration seeing themselves shut out I rum tho use of Banks finding that thooxperiment had failed anu being incapable (for it is in Hie power only of great minds) of going back being like a man floating in a current ready to catch at any 6nag, and waiting for some pieco of floating timber lliey wcro ready for anything rather than the Bunk. It was plain that they would do preci-ely what they havo done. Seeing that then had de prived themselves of the p'jwer la control the currency, they said they could not find it. It was natural that they thould do precise ly what they did. and by saying that they had not tho power, relievo themselves from the duly of exercising it. They have de prived themselves ol the constitutional means of performing their duty, and tried to avoid tho responsibility, but tho people forced that duly upon them, and called upon ihem to execute it. I cannot but remem ber tho fabled Grant of antiquity, upon whom, while tearing asunder the oak, tho strong fibres reacted and caught him in the cleft. Wo arc not safj a momont after we lose sight of tho great principle that the Gov ernment must regulate the currency. If thai power is surrounded, to whom .-hail it be given? To tho States? To all ilio Banks? To tho whole people? No, Gentlemen, suffering lhat principle to bo surrontlnred, id abandoning tho vessel of oiaio to bo borne alona, without helm, down tho current, in the midst of danger nnu darKness. As I havo said, whether the Sub-Treasury bo for tho receipt of money, or tor tho issuing of Treasury Notes all is for the purpose of relieving tho Gov urnment from tho embarrassment caused by their experiments. I say for distinct ties, and to prevent misapprehension, that I do not think it tho indcBOcnsabla obliga tion of tho Government to create a Na tional Bank. I speak not of particular measures. I say it is the general dutv of uongress to reguiaio llio curroncv but tho particular manner is not prescribed. Congress is lofi to its own judgment as to llie means to bo employed, But by what over means, it is a duty, which, unperform ed, ono grand nbjnct of tho Constitution is unaccomplished. 1 sny, what no event can controvert, that till Congress lakes caro of tho Curroncv, that part of tho Constilu tion is unfulfilled. The Government and tub U. States Bank Wo learn with tho highest satis faction, that tho Bank of tho United States , urraogeu with tho government to antlClpatQ tho Pavrnnnt. nf itH Bond fur Two Millions which falls duo in October next, on account oi ma Government's share in IIIO assets Ol the old Bank. Tim nnrrotia tion was mado through CharlcH Mac Ales- tor, a distinguished broker of Philadelphia Tho Bond is taken at par iho Bank pay ing interest up to tho day of its rcdomntion and tho Government having tho money placed to its credit in specie funds at such parts of tho Union as its own exigences may designate. Tho Bank's agent offered also to puichasa the Bond which falls duo in October, 1830, and pay for it in tho 6amc manner; but tho Government has not decided that the wholo sum duo from the Biuk is required by the present necessities of tho public, service. It is understood, however, that a negotiation for the purchase in like manner of tho Bond which falls due in 1810, (tho fourth and last given by the Bank tho first having fallen duo and been paid last October) has also been effected. Report adds, that the whole business has been transacted in the best possible spirit, nnd thai the terms and places of payment will be advantageous to both parties. If we rightly unih'rstnnd it, this puts an end to the issue of Treasury Notes. The Gov eminent will not multiply tho evidences of its own indebtedness and embarrassment, when it has tho option of anticipating its distant resources at tho Eame rate of inter est. This is a themo for universal con gratulation. Wo havo seen it positively stated in several respectable journals that tho Bank has itself been issuing Bonds in olher words, borrowing money at Eeven per cent. If this bo the fact, 'the monster has certainly done a handsome thing in thus coming to the aid of the Government But the truth is, that the Government and Banks are materially affected by each other's embarrassments; and when one is low in the pocket the other cannot but feel it. It is best, therefore, to take hold to gether, with hearty good will, and help the whole train out ol the mire at once. The great interests of tho country arc bound up in each other's prosperity, and they cannot bo 'divorced' without mutual injury. very jaws of death, and is now approaching convalescence.
